Supreme Court Officers (Pensions) Bill (29 Apr 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I think that the answer to the question posed by the right hon. and learned Member for Neepsend (Sir F. Soskice), the ton. Member for Edge Hill (Mr. A. J. Irvine) and others—that is to say, why should there be this connection between the abandonment of patronage and the right to a pension?—is surely this, and it was touched upon by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for...

Supreme Court Officers (Pensions) Bill (29 Apr 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: That may well be, but it makes me even more frightened, and I am obliged to the hon. Member for his intervention. What I am afraid of is that under the new arrangements that have been come to, judges' clerks will be appointed much younger and retire at a much younger age. From the public interest point of view, that will be very bad. I am very glad we have with us tonight my right hon. and...

Orders of the Day — Indian Textile Imports (12 Jul 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Despite the lateness of the hour, and the fact that hon. Members are somewhat fatigued, I wish to raise a matter which is of great moment, not only to my constituents, but, indeed, to the whole of Lancashire, and that is the immense increase in the number and quantity of textiles imported into this country from India. Indian textiles are admitted without quota, and virtually with tariff, and...

International Organisations (Immunities and Privileges) (21 Oct 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I should like to ask two or three questions of my hon. Friend, because I did not hear all of his speech, being out of the Chamber for part of it. To what extent are we blazing the trail here? What other nations have agreed to these various international instruments and have also written into their domestic law the very considerable privileges we are asked to write into our domestic law? That...

International Organisations (Immunities and Privileges) (21 Oct 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Let me follow that up. Would the hon. Member agree that it would be right for the United States to treat American employees of the United Nations who are working in New York more severely than they treat employees who happen to be citizens of other countries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (Procedure) (28 Oct 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the procedural change suggested is quite small and would mean carrying with it the confidence of the businesses which are being examined? Is my right hon. Friend further aware that the change involved is merely that of making the Commission more of an arbitrator and less that of an inquisitor or prosecutor? Would not that be a quite simple change to make,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Docks Strike, London (11 Nov 1954)

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (3 Dec 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The right hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. Dugdale), in the first part of his speech, seemed to fall below the level of the tone of this debate, because we are all agreed on the development of the Colonial Empire, and indeed that is what we are talking about today. The right hon. Gentleman's suggestion that my right hon. Friend the Colonial Secretary and the Colonial Office generally are...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (3 Dec 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I was not talking about nationalisation in this country, but the nationalisation of the coal industry in the colonial countries, which was what the right hon. Gentleman the Member for West Bromwich suggested, and I wondered if that doctrine was received by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Llanelly.

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (3 Dec 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: But there are private coal industries in Tanganyika and in Rhodesia as well. I wonder whether that suggestion was put forward by the Labour Party officially. The suggestion that my right hon. Friend is looking chiefly to the interests of the people of this country so far as the development of the Colonial Empire is concerned, is, if I may say so, nonsense. In one respect I shall perhaps...
